Dell Outlet, Dell’s online website for selling refurbished and overstock tech, is currently running a generous sale on select models of refurbished laptops. It’s a chance to pick up a computer that fits your needs—from a budget-priced workhorse to a machine with a powerful processor—at a significant savings.
Keep in mind that when buying from the Dell Outlet you will get the same limited hardware warranty and service as if you bought new. You also get free shipping and a 30-day return policy. “Like new” means the laptop was previously owned and could have “observable minor blemishes” that don’t affect performance—or it could look as good as new. In either case, all of the computers have been certified and are guaranteed to work like new.
Here are my picks for the best budget, midrange, and high-end laptops currently available for at least 50% off their original prices.
If you’re on a budget but still want to pick up a versatile machine, consider the Latitude 11” 3000 (3140) 2-in-1 laptop, currently $395. Note that while Dell Outlet lists their “original price” as $1,182, building the same laptop on their website give you a price of $719, which is still 45% off. Whichever way you look at it, this “like-new” laptop is a great deal. Dell’s 2-in-1 laptops mix the functionality of a laptop with the touchscreen capabilities of a tablet. In this price range, you’d be hard-pressed to find a comparable model offering more than the Latitude’s 8 GB of memory and 128 GB of storage.
Another budget laptop to consider for a bit more processing power is the Latitude 13” 3000 (3340) 2-in-1 laptop, on sale for $476 (original price $1,373).
For those who don’t mind spending a bit more money, the Latitude 14” 3000 (3440), on sale for $660 (original price $1,674), offers a considerable upgrade on processor power, with an Intel Core 13th Generation i5-1335U processor, 256 GB of storage and 16 GB of memory. This will allow you significantly more power for multitasking than the budget 3140 option. This “like-new” laptop does not include a touchscreen, but it is still anti-glare.
Another laptop to consider if you do want the touchscreen capabilities is the Latitude 13” 5000 (5330) 2-in-1 laptop $607 (original price $2,332), but note that this model also only offers 8 GB of memory.
If your budget is bigger but you’re still looking for a great deal, consider the Latitude 13” 7000 (7340) 2-in-1 laptop, currently $1,357 (original price $3,392). This will upgrade you to an Intel Core 13th Generation i7-1365U processor, which is Intel’s second-best processor behind the i9. You also get twice the amount of storage (512 GB) and 16 GB of memory. This “like-new” laptop is another 2-in-1, meaning you will get to use it as a tablet if you want to. If you want a light and small laptop that allows you to multitask and that offers reliable battery life, the Latitude 13” 7000 7340 will do the job.
Finally, if you’re looking for a laptop with a bigger screen, consider the Latitude 14” 7000 (7430) 2-in-1 laptop for $1,371 (original price $3,704).
